Realtime groove module with the Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine!
The Spectrasonics Stylus RMX is a plug-in for PC and Mac that combines the power of Groove Control with Spectrasonics Advanced Groove Engine (S.A.G.E.) technology. The Stylus RMX was created from the ground up with features including the Chaos Designer, a redesigned multipage interface, a new core of library sounds, all with a focus on realtime groove creation and performance.
New Core library
The massive 7.4GB core library in Stylus RMX has thousands of cutting-edge grooves and sounds created by Spectrasonics' international sound design team and produced by Eric Persing. The core library contains nearly triple the amount of sounds originally offered in the original Stylus, and all the original material as well. The new sounds and grooves in Stylus RMX offer a much wider range of modern musical genres than the original. Mixes of grooves are broken down into individual tracks, called Elements, for flexibility and infinite combinations.
Also new in Stylus RMX are thousands of Kit modules, as well as user Kit construction. The new sound menus have over 10,000 new single hits, all arranged in organized categories. You can create your own customized multitrack remix grooves and kits, save them into the plug-in, and even share them with other Stylus RMX users on different platforms and hosts. It's the ultimate Remix-oriented sound module for building grooves.
Stylus RMX is Spectrasonics' first expandable system, with a series of 5 "S.A.G.E. Xpanders" for Stylus RMX. Stylus RMX also can be expanded with existing Groove Control CD-ROM libraries and even REX files--which opens the door for musicians to utilize their own audio loops within the powerful S.A.G.E. Environment.
Introduce subtle to extreme musical Chaos into the groove with simple controls, which allows it to have constantly evolving variations--giving the impression the audio grooves are improvising. A Capture feature allows the spontaneous audio chaos patterns to be made into a MIDI file, dragged and dropped into the host sequencer, and played back again for further editing.

This thing is awesome. It has endless possibilities, not to mention the time I saved on just creating music.
Lots of people have written about this product and its unending uses for electronic and hiphop but there is another aspect of this software that is just starting to catch on. I produce Rock, Pop, Indie and songwriter type stuff and I use Stylus RMX for almost every ProTools session I create. If your used to multitracking you probably have a idea of how useful it is to have your sessions BPM synced to the tempo of your songs. Now if your using a click track to help your musicians keep time with your session you might have found there to be problems with 1/4 or 1/8 note clicks cause they just don't groove with your song. this is where stylus RMX comes in for me. I can get the exact groove for any song I could ever work on. I use a stereo stylus loop instead of a 1/4 or /18 note click. And I do it just about every session. It helps all my musicians keep not only good time but great goove. Also as an added bouns... if your the kind producer who spends lots of time editing and pocketing your audio the stylus come in handy as a visual tool for what to pocket your waveforms to. I would never consider using stylus to simulate a real drum set. If your looking for real sounding drums check out BFD. You'd never know your not listening to real recorded drums with the BFD. Don't get me wrong! I use stylus beats often in final mixes to add a kinda of electronic groove feel before bringing in the full band drums and such. they sound and feel great. lots of cool kits to choose from and as I said. there is no way you can't find the groove you want within a few minutes.As a producer your just cutting yourself short if you don't have Stylus in your rig. It simply is a time saver and great idea builder. GET IT!
